WHO'S YOUR HERO?
WHO'S YOUR HERO?

Testament LCG represents a unique opportunity to invest at the crossroads of a growing market of religious, educational, and entertainment products. Testament is a bible-themed tradeable card game designed to withstand careful inspection by Christians, meet the game-play challenges demanded by gamers, and maintain a broad based appeal from secular audiences such as history enthusiasts. Testament is designed for players ages 10 and up.

Living Card Games (LCG), a genre introduced by Fantasy Flight Games, challenges what you know about traditional tradeable card games (TCG or CCG).  The traditional TCG model was built on randomizing booster packs to make the customer want to trade duplicates in order to complete a set.  Deep End Games will institute a more consistent and fair environment getting rid of the randomization in our packs and thereby creating a fun experience for the gamer. Testament LCG starter boxes will contain a large assortment of cards pulling only from our first set appropriately titled "Genesis". It will contain a clearly outlined set of cards that the costumer will know in advance what he/she is purchasing.  In other words - No Random Packs! Also, no new cards will be introduced in starter boxes. The starter boxes will be a limited edition product meant more for new players to get a head start into a game where their friends have already built up a collection.

There Are No Random Packs In Testament LCG

Booster packs and expansions will also be completely done away with. Instead of releasing massive expansions 3 or 4 times a year, Testament LCG will feature monthly releases of “collector's packs”. Collector's packs feature a fixed and unchanging set of 40 cards each. The packs will include one each of 10 rare cards, and 3 each of 10 common cards. The contents of each individual pack do not change so players will always know exactly what cards they are getting when they buy a Collector's pack. Packs will include new cards only, and will continue to be reprinted as long as the game is out. Every month a new pack will come out featuring another assortment of 10 rares and 10 commons.

Testament is designed to immerse game players into a new world. The visually stunning artwork and card design capture the attention of both Christian and secular audiences. The Game-play relevant bible quotes aid players in understanding  game-play. The game-play is competitive and strategic in order to keep the players interest.

Testament can change to meet market demands. One of the many strengths of the game lies in the adaptability of the media. Game play rules and card design are living, evolving documents that can grow with customer expectations.

Deep End Games believes that Testament Living Card Game™ is a wonderful alternative to traditional Christian organization fund raising products. Not only is Testament™ a great instructional tool for youth organizations, the “gaming” nature of the product strongly appeals to adolescents between the ages of ten to eighteen, a typically difficult constituent to engage in church based activities. Testament™ can be introduced to Christian youth as a recreational activity that compliments the core values of your church while remaining fun and “trendy” like other popular games played by teens.

The Testament Two Player Starter Deck is available to Christian organizations at special pricing for use in fundraising activities. We believe that by making Testament™ easy to obtain, and by providing exceptional support, Testament™ will become popular among youth who are seeking exciting forms of Christian entertainment. The following program guide provides everything you need to know to begin the Testament™ experience in your community.

Testament will be sold to Christian organizations as a means to raise funds for the church. Starter boxes sold at $14.99 can be re-sold to the church community for the retail price of $24.99.  the proceeds of the sales will go to the church.

Risks and challenges

The major challenge to developing and launching Testament Living Card game is the ability for our small group to develop marketing and distribution channels. Our teams core competency and interest is the design and development of tabletop and card games. We are looking to bring onboard an individual or group who is more suited to head up the business/marketing aspects of the project.
